Ducati Diavel & Diavel Carbon
The Ducati Diavel was in 2011 a new concept for Ducati. This bike was drawn from a blank sheet was a step into a new sector of the motorcycle market for Ducati.
So What's changed about the Ducati Diavel to make the bike we have today?
Starting with cosmetics, the LED headlamp has been changed to a more angular and very stylish unit. Subtle changes to the air intakes and side cowls and a champher cut shorter exhaust system showing off the splendid rear wheel as standard.
Ducati did not stop with cosmetics. As we always expect of them, much time and attention has been given over to the improved running of the Ducati Diavel for 2014 / 2015. With the use of a new twin spark cylinder head and painstakingly modified fuel remapping this new Diavel model boasts great improvements with regards to the power delivery in the low rev range and smaller throttle openings.
As with the Ducati Multistrada, the heart of this beast is closely derived from the 1198 Superbike engine. The use of a powerful 1198 L-Twin engine mounted in an all new slim, lightweight chassis that has been built to cope with a mulitude of demands. A series of different ignition and fueling maps for different ridestyles available at the flick of a switch (whilst riding). Each of the modes also affects how traction control reacts.
The Ducati Diavel has three ride modes adjusting Traction control and levels of power at the flick of a switch (or rider settings can be applied). These three available modes are:-
All derivatives of the Ducati Diavel utilise a keyless ignition system that allows the bike to be started as long as the rider has on his person the remote transponder that initialises the ignition when within a 2 metre range of the machine.
Ducati know that cost per mile is also a big factor in our decision making process, doubling the mileage between valve clearance inspection has been made possible with the introduction of a new valve seat material combined with improved combustion efficiency and temperature management designed into the Diavel 's new Testastretta 11° engine.
So called because of its minimised 11° of ‘valve overlap’ - the interval of crankshaft rotation during which both the intake and exhaust valves are open at the same time - the new Desmodromic power plant not only transforms the world championship-winning 1198 configuration into a super-smooth 162hp motor, but also improves fuel efficiency, emissions and cost of scheduled maintenance.
That's enough about the technology. Now take a look at the design. The clean lines, the individual concept, the 240 section rear tyre, the huge exhaust manifolds all blended together to make a machine that oozes muscle.
The rear seat cover removes to find a pillion seat, below which, there are neatly folded away a pair of slender pillion footrests. Lift the seat on its hinge, pull on a button and out comes the grab rail for passenger security. All carefully thought out so as not to diminish from the small and minimalistic rear end of the bike.

The carbon model has carbon bodywork and different lighter weight wheels that are machined with polished detailing, as are the front discs.
